? vice-president joe biden held a google chat answering questions about the new assault weapons ban proposed by senator dianne feinstein, and biden was asked what would you say to people that you say are infringing on the rights not in the sense of sports or hunting, but the last line of defense of an earthquake or some other natural disaster. well, here is the vice-president's response. >> a shotgun will keep you a lot safer, a double barrel shotgun or assault weapons in somebody's hands doesn't know how to use it. it's harder to use an assault weapon than a shotgun to hit something, if you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy shotgun shells. >> and since you only have a double barrel shotgun, hopefully only one person coming and only takes two shells to take him out. if you have multiple people coming and buy some shotgun shells probably don't have time to reload and throw them hard enough, you can stop the rest of the attackers. this is shows the i had i don't don'tsy-- idiocy of those who are asking us to give up weapons of self-defense, only one person would minimal a

shot gun god help you as joe biden won't. >> golfer phil mickleson made headlines when he suggested he could move out of home state of california because of potential tax hikings. on wednesday he apologized for making his feelings so public. >> i love it here and grew up here and i am certainly concerned for it. my apology is for talking about it publicly. because i shouldn't have taken advantage of the forum as i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change over the issues. >> oh, phil. think about all of your friend in the california and all of the folk in hollywood who use celebrity to try to affect change. think about how many differents we suffer in a election season to see celebrity to vote for their favorite candidate. you have a right to earn the money that you have earned and you actually have a right to keep more than 37 percent of it. instead of apologizing use that platform and voice and remind us all that we shouldn't be ashamed of being successful it is the american dream. but it is also part of the american nightmare when the government want to take most of the
